Spadafora Sentenced for Two Drunken Driving Counts

by David P. Greisman

Undefeated former lightweight titleholder was sentenced Tuesday to four days of “alternative confinement” after pleading guilty to two counts of driving under the influence and one count of driving with a suspended license, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The arrests came from two incidents last year; one in September 2011, the other in October 2011, according to The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Spadafora, whose history of legal troubles has sabotaged his career, will then be on probation, the Post-Gazette article said.

The 37-year-old last fought in August — his first bout since 2010, part of an ongoing comeback that began way back in 2006. In his most recent outing, he outpointed Humberto Toledo over eight rounds to improve his record to 46-0-1 with 19 knockouts.

Spadafora is in the wrong field, dude should be a rapper with that rap sheet.

They keep telling us that getting drunk inhibits ones reflexes and motor skills. Well i remember back in my console playing days i would always crush my high scores when drunk. Shows what they know. :D

Put this loser back in prison before he hurts somebody outside the ring.

I thought the dude only just got out of prison recently? He must have a major self destruct urge.
